About this image

I confess the quality is not as good I would have liked, but this is one of the first images taken since I returned to La Palma. The seeing was poor (3-6as) and transparency not good. Because darks and flats have not yet been taken photometry was out of the question so I looked for TNOs in the BAA Handbook and came across (174567) Varda.

The barely detected object is precisely in the right position and there is nothing else located there. I must try again on a better night.
